Colors by Llarowe ~ Mom Jeans & Window to my Soul



Colors by Llarowe ~ Mom Jeans & Window to my Soul
In a gradient

I really like gradients, but I do them way too seldom. I think it’s because they often don’t end up like I imagined them. But never mind – I’ll do one today!

First I painted my nails with a layer of Window to my Soul, which is a magenta holo with color-shifting and pink shimmer. It’s a part of the Mysterious Vanishing Pigments Collection which is a limited edition collection. Then I made my gradient with that and Mom Jeans. Mom Jeans is denim blue linear holo with gold flake and is from the Oh, Baby! collection.

Take a look at my final mani:


Do you like it? The stamp is from BondleMunster’s BM-407.


Here is the low light picture. You might be able to see some of the gold flakies in Mom Jeans on my middle finger, if you observe carefully.


Here’s the gradient before I stamped on it.


Once again I wasn’t quite happy with the gradient. The colours don’t blend enough where they meet. The stamp helped a great deal though.


Number of coats: Probably two
Drying time: Really good
Finish: Linear holo (with shimmer / flakies)
Overall impression: Great polishes both of them
Buy again: Yes
